The influx of Dutch into Reading FC has continued with the confirmed signing of winger Roy Beerens. Beerens has been on the radar for some time and signs from German top tier club Hertha Berlin on a three year contract. Jaap Stam spoke very highly of the player on his arrival as he continues to build his new squad ready for the new season.
The 28 year old player spent two seasons at Hertha Berlin after a career that has included spells at Dutch sides AZ Alkmaar, Heerenveen and PSV Eindhoven. Beerens is a light weight player in size, but is reported to be strong and fast and can play down either wing. Beerens will link up with fellow recent signings Joey van den Berg and Danzell Gravenberch as Reading FC continues to take on a more and more Dutch look.
